About Our Lady of the Lake University:
On the foundation of faith, wisdom and trust in Providence, Our Lady of the
Lake University (OLLU) prepares graduates to transform their communities,
families and professions.
OLLU, founded in 1895 by the Congregation of Divine Providence, is a
coeducational comprehensive institution with an enrollment of more than 3,100
students. With its main residential campus in San Antonio and non-traditional
programs in San Antonio, Houston, the Rio Grande Valley (La Feria), and
online, OLLU has a presence in two of the largest cities in Texas, the border
region, and literally around the world.
The University offers more than 30 undergraduate majors and minors, 14
master's programs and three doctoral programs through its College of Arts and
Sciences, School of Business and Leadership, and the College of Professional
Studies. OLLU offers classes in daytime, evening, weekend and online formats.

the needs of our students as they develop their professional identities as
counselors who are prepared to work with clients from diverse backgrounds. Our
